Yes it is sometimes like that to me, but after a minute I can spawn/reset instance.
Anyway rooted! Nice box I never touched electon app before went into rabbit hole because of that so yea fun! It is only me or this box went from easy to medium overnight?

Why does the machine fail to spawn? Anyone else having this issue?

It just spawned for me right now. Got fixed I’m guessing.

Yes, Discord was on fire about the easy rating and htb confirmed and changed from Easy to Medium.

Okey, thanks :smile: Interesting decision but the points was left for 20 as for easy box from what I can see. But I’m no right person to judge any of this so I’m just happy that I manage to solve this box :smiley:

Hi all, anybody available to help me get user? I know the exploit and how to execute it but I guess I have been doing something wrong for the past 4 hours. If someone could please DM to help me

Pretty lost on this box after enumerating and trying a few different things.

LMAO I’ve been enumerating too for a while now but not really sure what route to go now…S** was a bust.

I’ve been trying for an hour to create an instance in the Release Arena, no luck so far. Maybe this box should be moved to insane.

I opened a ticket…

You can DM me on discord 0xAniket#4393 or here.

Got user, tonight I’ll try to root the box.
I was doing everything correctly but a little dumb mistake that blocked me for like 12 hours.

P.S. I’m using lab vpn and not release arena because I can’t spawn the machine there (IP 10.10.10.237)
Edit: rooted!

Foothold/user: start with classical enumeration and focus on ‘less common’ ways, you’ll find useful information that will let you understand what the target offers. With some google-fu you’ll eventually find the right article that will show you how to get into the box
Root: enumerate with classical tools, beware of rabbit holes!

Thanks for the box!
